Lucky ABC
Everything is good, new beds are needed or don't let people pull up the fitted sheet to expose the stains in mattress.

Colorful experience, pretty chill
Lucky D's is very colorful, bohemian and chill. Lots of international students coming and going. People seem to respect the rules, like not flushing the wrong stuff down the toilet, and keeping the common rooms pretty cleaned up. The people at the front desk were very nice. Occasional pot smell. One thing, bring earplugs if you plan on sleeping, since the windows in our 4 bed room couldn't be closed, and there is a restaurant downstairs, which plays music until around 2am, so you get that and the street noise, plus the garbage trucks in the morning. Each bed has a fan and light, but neither of mine worked, so people used their iphone lights after lights out. Also, there are small lockers in the rooms, and you bring your own lock. They recommend a nearby CVS. The bunk bed I was on was actually very comfy, and had clean sheets and a clean pillow. I was going to an event at the Convention Center, so each morning, I easily walked down there, having breakfast on the way. Being downtown, there were lots of homeless folks, but they were chill.

4/10 Fair

I liked the fact that there was a receptionist late at night, and also that the toilet and shower were clean, and water drained well. However, there was no water in the sink faucet in one of the toilets, and the sheets were dirty they caused itching.

Lucky D’s was great value to stay in San Diego! It’s quite centrally located, it was in a good location for trips to 5th street and the convention centre. First night, I was in a room where I didn’t feel comfortable and the staff acted quickly and swapped my room for the rest of my stay which was excellent! The place was pretty clean and has lots of space to socialize. Biggest issue I had with “cleanliness” was that the refrigerator didn’t entirely seem to be cold enough to store food safely, I think maybe it was just too full! Shower areas and bathrooms were clean considering the number of people using them. We did have an issue with our room door hinges falling off one morning, we laughed it off though and the were quick to fix it for us! I would recommend to stay here if you’re looking to meet people while travelling! :)

The property reminded me of a college dorm, colorful, clean, lively, and reasonable price for the Gaslamp area. Good choice for a one or two night stay on a budge. :)
